A surface trough and cold front combination to the west of Tasmania is causing
an extensive cloud band over Tasmania, southern Victoria and southeast New South
Wales. Low cloud in the cold air behind the trough is affecting the coastal
areas of South Australia.
Some high cloud is streaming across the southwest parts of Western Australia and
is due to an upper level jetstream.
A narrow band of mostly middle level cloud can be seen over the central parts of
Western Australia in the vicinity of a surface trough.
Further north, another surface trough is responsible for thunderstorms near the
Kimberley and the western Top End coasts.
A low pressure system is responsible for extensive cloud with isolated embedded
thunderstorms over northern Queensland.
